Sometimes you just want to get away…but not enough to actually leave. Traveling is
expensive and you have to deal with buying gas or paying health insurance or accidentally being impregnated by your friendly TSA agents during a “random” search. So your pals over at the BW wanted you to know that you can get away from it all without ever having to leave the Metroplex. It doesn’t matter what prompts the trip, DFW has it all. Don’t believe us? See for yourself.

cutting it any more

Think about it, when was the last time you were actually comfortable at the movie theater? Exactly. iPic takes away the need to spring to the concession stand like you are running the 100-meter dash to ensure you get a good seat and there’s wine, champagne, Coronas, and Samuel
Adams at the friggin’ movies! Now if they could just figure out a way to execute people who text during movies.

Highland Park Village
The Metroplex’s own little piece of Rodeo Drive with the same amount of $30,000 millionaires and real housewives. HP Village is the fastest way to blow through money in DFW without marrying Pilar Sanders. The misses can destroy your budget in stores like Jimmy Choo, LAFCO New York, Tory Burch, Christian Louboutin, Diane von Furstenberg and dozens more all while sipping a Starbucks Frappuccino without ever having to smell the stench of poor people.
When you have to make up for something…in a big way
The W Hotel
Ok so you forgot your anniversary, her birthday, or farted during her mother’s funeral and it’s time to bring out the big guns. Nothing says “Baby I’m sorry” like a ‘just because’ night at a hotel. This isn’t just any hotel; The W is chic and sexy enough to get you out of trouble. There is a spa, an award-winning restaurant in Craft and a 16th
floor pool view that will make her forget all about how much she wants to push you over the edge.

And your co-workers will never know how close they came to the end.
